The University of Southampton
Assessment and Learning in Practice Settings


There are number of policies, processes and guidelines that students and educators/mentors need to be aware of in order to practise safely and effectively. These are available under Policies and Guideline on the left-hand navigation panel. They are divided into University Policies, Faculty Policies and Profession Specific Policies. The University Policies have been developed with the university population in mind, and are not specific to practice learning, but as a member of the university students need to abide by the policies. The Faculty Policies have been developed in collaboration with practice partners and are reflective of issues that commonly arise in practice. However, the policy of the organisation where the student is placed takes precedence over any Faculty guidelines. There are some Profession Specific Policies which apply to particular professional groups as there are situations where differences between the professions need to be managed accordingly.
